La Gloire de Mon Père by Marcel Pagnol

A delightful narrative about the events that unfold during a summer of the author’s childhood.

With beautiful descriptions of the French countryside, hilarious narration of complicated situations that the family finds itself in and an excellent account of the complex emotions in a family,  particularly between the father and son, this is a fun-filled book.

I love Marcel Pagnol’s writing style in this book. Simple and yet, so wonderfully descriptive, it brings to the fore, lovely childhood memories.

I am definitely looking forward to reading more books from the same author.
